      ~warning~ a lot of conjecture here, possible bad Science alert...*just trying to figure it out* :) I'm wondering if the large amounts of sodium we're taking in is affecting this balance...I hope Newport chimes in on this one, he brought this up quite some time ago. I also hope LNdolls chimes in as she is now using potassium chloride, wonder if that's affected the makeup of her "zits"?

      "I very offen have spots with open skin. Sharp egdes, watery center."

      ~ I've had this, so have others. Something that looks like a zit, but only watery fluid comes out....soooo.....this is what they are:

      "A vesicle is a well demarcated elevation of the superficial layers of the skin less than 1 cm in diameter. The skin elevation is due to accumulation of intercellular fluid beneath the roof of the vesicle. The fluid is usually serum or an inflammatory exudate. Vesicles as seen in viral diseases, irritant contact dermatitis and autoimmune disorders are often superficial; therefore the vesicles are often transient, with crusting and erosions common."

      Cells are permeable, this is governed by osmotic pressure:

      and what controls the osmotic pressure? Potassium/sodium balance. & many other factors, including insulin levels, blood pH, a hormone produced by the adrenals, aldosterone

      on potassium/sodium balance(this link has to do with body-building, I thought it was a good, clear explanation, though):

      "Sodium is the primary positively charged ion in extra-cellular fluid. Sodium
      regulates blood volume, acid-base balance, muscle and nerve function and
      ATP-hydrolyzing activity in skeletal muscle. Potassium is the primary
      positively charged ion in intracellular fluid. Potassium regulates intra-muscular
      fluid levels, muscle and nerve function and ATP-hydrolyzing activity in skeletal

      As you can see, sodium and potassium perform very similar functions with the
      major difference being in the intra and extra-cellular fluid regulation. Most
      everyone is aware that sodium has an effect on subcutaneous (under the skin)
      fluid retention. Potassium has its effect on fluid inside the muscle cell. What
      most don’t realize is that these two minerals are constantly striving for
      equilibrium. When one gets out of line with the other your system will strive to
      adjust to the underlying situation.

      When you cut your sodium intake, your body will quickly compensate by
      holding more sodium in and releasing potassium out thereby decreasing fluid
      inside the muscle cell. When you increase your sodium intake your body will
      compensate by holding more potassium in (increasing intra-muscular fluid) and
      increasing the excretion of sodium.

      Sodium, potassium and the balance between the two can have a prominent
      impact on muscle size and anabolism (increased cellular fluid inside the muscle
      cell promotes an anabolic response in muscle tissue) as well as strength
      through increase joint leverage. Also, elevated sodium and potassium levels
      will tend to prevent soft tissue injuries so common in heavy training.

      ...Sodium and potassium are regulated by aldosterone. Aldosterone is produced
      in the adrenal cortex. Steroids have a direct influence on the adrenal cortex
      which also produces cortisol and other glucocorticoids..."

      and everything you could ever want to know about potassium balance:
